Latest Website Updates & News
Update for 6/11/11: A NEW SERIES OF IT'S A KNOCKOUT IS COMING! Naturally, I'm taking full credit! Thank you though to the many that have signed the petition, contributed to this website, and kept the dream alive all these years!

I've taken the opportunity to do various additions to the website.

Older website updates below.

Previous Website Updates
Update for 2/1/06: Happy New Year! I've finished uni, meaning THE IT'S A KNOCKOUT WEB IS BACK!!! Updates: View the petition to Channel 10 (entertaining reading!). Plus, the Shandell Tribute Page has been updated! E-mail me if you would be interested in attending an IAK convention. I'm thinking of holding one in Melbourne first, and then perhaps more in other Australian capital cities if the first one is successful. 2005-7 are 20 year anniversaries for It's a Knockout!
Repeats of It's a Knockout are currently being broadcast in Argentina, on the Telefé network. Broadcast under the name 'Supermatch', it has been adapted for Spanish-speaking audiences, and Ricky May has a new name -- 'Antonio Sinatra'! If you want IAK videos, perhaps it's time to make some friends in South America! The show is hugely successful and rating well over there. This website is receiving many hits from Argentina, second only to Australia. I'm looking for donations of translation services for the website in all languages!
The It's a Knockout Web has outgrown its current host, Geocities. In particular, web storage space is desperately short. I have purchased a top-level domain name to aid in the site's expansion, and I am inviting offers for the donation of web hosting services and expertise in activating the new domain name. In return, I can offer advertising space on the site. I don't make any money from this site.
Forthcoming developments to the site include behind-the-scenes photos, media articles, video (hopefully) and exciting design improvements. Welcome back!
Update for 16/8/05: The It's a Knockout Web is not dead! Things have been really busy with uni for me for the past few... years [gulp]. Luckily, that ordeal is almost over (just a few weeks to go now), so I'll be able to update the site and respond to e-mails more often. I've got a big pile of IAK press clippings just ready and waiting to be scanned in and uploaded. There are also over 500 received petition signings to be compiled and placed on the site. Stay tuned for The It's a Knockout Web's exciting return!

Competitor of the Week
You are in good hands
Bob Sellars
Riverland (Captain), South Australia

The words 'Bob' and 'Sellars' when arranged sequentially are synonymous with IAK excellence. In addition to being a virtuoso of IAK strategy, the athletic Sellars never shirked the call to put his body on the line in some of the more difficult or dangerous events. A practising physiotherapist, he doubtlessly employed these skills to himself and his team in their struggle for glory. Glory they experienced often: Riverland achieved two show wins and one second placing in Heat 1 of the 1986 series, to win the SA division. They unluckily finished last in their Semi-final appearance, even considering the formidable competition: Vermont, Newcastle and Childers. The motivation of the motley crew that was the Riverland team (everyone's favourite back-hoe operator Andrew Sloan, Vicky Pudney and Kay Harding) is a credit to Sellars. A very exciting player to watch. Taking a spill for the festival state
